is not resonating with 21st century america. if you continue on the same track the party will keep losing ground. host: from "the weekly standard," in both cases president bush and president obama winning by a margin of victory by 2.4%. guest: that does not surprise me. i knew it was going to be minutes before the republican party through mitt romney under the bus. i do think he was a weak candidate, but the republicans nominated him as a behind him and insisted he was the answer to america's prayers. they did not have any choice. when you look at the other choices in the primary, who would have done a better job? herman cain? michele bachmann? jeb bush did not run. they got stuck with mitt romney. host: california has gone from a republican to a purple to a solid democratic state. what has changed? ronald reagan winning back in 1984. guest: i am proud to take a little bit of credit for that four at one time being the democratic party chair in california. the republican party is a mirror of the national republican party in the sense that i think they lost track of where the country was moving. r
. >> thank you. for those who believe that america is founded is the greatest country in the history of the world, we wanted someone who would fight for us. we wanted a fighter like ronald reagan who boldly championed america opposing founding principles who inspired millions of independence and reagan democrats to join us and who fought his leftist opponents on the -- idea that america was a shining city upon a hill. what we got was a week moderate candidate handpicked by the beltway elite and country club establishment wing of the republican party. the presidential loss is unequivocally on them. with a catastrophic loss, the tea party is the last best hope america has to restore her founding principles. while it may take longer to restore with president, back in office we're not going away. it took nearly 100 years to take america to the place where we are today. it will take more than 3 1/2 years to restore our constitution. we're going to keep fighting. we respect the constitution and we now that for america to succeed, we need to continue educating americans on our core principl

at the convention was i believe we showed america -- one of the highlights at the convention was we showed america that we are diversifying. we have great enthusiasm, visionary people on our team like susanna martinez, governor haley and senator rubio. i know we just came through a very tough election but i am extremely optimistic about our feature. we are just about two years in office and i am proud of the progress we have made. i know we still have a lot of work to do. we have had tremendous capital investment in our state. google just announced another $200 million investment yesterday. we have restored stability back into state government in iowa has a robust and diverse work force. with over 500138 attendees iowa is on the move with fresh and new faces. we remain committed to providing a business climate that fosters new business, and addition in gives our loyal business is the stability they need to grow and expand. iowa's economy cannot be where it is today without the tough choices and leadership of governor brandstad. havepw many of you here heard me say that governor brandstad was the r
. >> are there any lights that teenage america have help? >> we literally only have ucla up and running for the past, even now they are still refurbishing building in the communal area, so it is still under construction. i have not a man of -- the idea of those things come and go. after going to duke, i went to yale. i went into three separate rooms, three teenage boys. another one of his last treatment. i cannot remember exactly what. his hair was all gone. there was another boy in isolation. unfortunately i could not visit him because i was on a really tight schedules. there they were, three boys. none of them knew they were next door to each other. they are proposing to implement a program, starting with an outpatient program. they get it. it is just a a matter of juggling balls and giving them the right place. >> have you found the social media platform like twitter has led them to york ucla program? >> i did not do it. i do not go on any of those things. they terrify me.

for nearly 20 years becoming known as the most trusted man in america for his objective, straightforward reporting. he was the face of cbs. three years after he stepped down from the news anger desk, the school was named in is honored. that grew over the next 25 years. today three years after his passing, he continues to be our guiding light. it is truly a special honor to have jeff fager with us tonight to talk about the traditional values of journalism and how those values remain the cornerstone of cbs news today in our digital age. he became the chairman and february 2011. cbs news won a peabody award under his leadership and was the only network to grow its audience. he also has relaunched cbs this morning with a focus on a harder news. he has served as executive producer of 60 minutes giving it a new graphical again emphasizing more timeless stories. he also grew the show's online presence by revamping 60 and launching the ipad app. under his leadership, 60 minutes reaches an estimated 121 million unique viewers a season. more than double that of the nearest competitor a
, we met those to standards that have been outlined. it is time for america to deal with the spending problem. we have listened to the american people, and make sure that we cannot get into the spot again. this is the the shot in the 20 years i have been here to build support for a budget -- a balanced budget. this is sorely needed, we have never gotten ourselves into the mess that we are in. this is important for the fiscal future but also for the fact that our economy needs to get going. beginning to take steps to fixing the fiscal problems, the people we expect to reinvest in our economy are doing a great job. >> we had a president asking us for a blank check and he did not get this. and a big increase on job creators. we got the -- we got that. and we have been trying to get discretionary spending caps in loss since i have been here for 13 years. we have been introducing legislation for the last eight years to get caps on spending. we could not get this the last time the republicans were in the majority. we see this as a good step in the right direction. every cent down payment in
-backed broadcasting outlets, like "voice of america." the george washington school of international affairs hosted this event tuesday. this is an hour and 45 minutes. >> that is public diplomacy in action.

to which the campaign on ideas and issues and reforms we feel would be best for virginia and america. we still remain friends personally. i congratulated him and i pledge my cooperation and support has the and shakes the sullom task of representing the people of virginia during a very difficult times in our nation's history. we have not succeeded in winning this election. many folks helping out in this campaign. each of you should hold your heads high. we honestly and vigorously advocated our principles and offered a clear vision for the future. creating jobs and a competitive tax system, and powering education, reasonable at it -- policy. offered a pro freedom path to fiscal responsibility for our nation. the best way to preserve the peace is the strength. we also call for unleashing america's plentiful american energy resources for more jobs, opportunity, greater national security and revenues to the government. that is everywhere from our fields to the coast. virginia is ready and able to power the economy. we spoke to renew our historic commitment to individual freedom, personal resp
. there is an appetite in america for big ideas that unite us. >> a larger idea that we should all be thinking about is how we treat our returning veterans from the two largest wars in america's history -- iraq and afghanistan. [applause] they represent less than 1% of the american population. most of them come from working- class families, from not too far from here in the working- class neighborhoods of chicago or from the barrios of the southwest or the deep woods of the south and the hills of new england or from the rural part of my native great plains. they volunteered out of a sense of patriotism and a determination to advance their own lives as well. in the course of these two long wars, they have taken 100% of the risks and 100% of the wounds and 100% of the deaths. their families at home have been living in bubble of emotional trauma thinking that no one around them cares because nothing was asked of the rest of us. if we did not have someone in that war or if we did not know someone in that war, it could be out of sight, out of mind. we were not asked to make any sacrifices at home. the wa
for the united states senate because i want to make a difference. i believe america needs a new generation of leadership. what is wrong with america is extreme politics and extreme wealth. my opponent to represent the status quo. charlie summer's represents extreme politics and angus king represents extreme wealth. what i am offering the state of maine is someone who is not beholden to outside interests. we need a new generation of leadership. i hope to have your support. >> my name is andrew ian dodge. i am in this race because i believe the issues of liberty, freedom, and individual rights are being trampled on left and right, whether it is a resting -- arresting a farmer for selling raw milk. i have a touch of ethnicity about me and i am the youngest in the race. i hope we have an excellent discussion. there are a lot of issues are really matter. it has just been reported that we have the distinction of being the second worst place to earn a living in the country. we need new blood. i am that new blood. >> governor angus king? >> we have some serious issues in the country and we will be
you and it romney. this is a serious time for our country. we have a very big choice in america. it comes down to what kind of america we want to have. there is this crushing debt and the stifling of the american dream we have seen over the past four years. it is going to affect all of us. there are some people that are undecided right now. the message is that the president has tried but his policies have not worked. they have failed our state and they will fail the country. that is what it is time for real change what am romney and paul ryan. -- real change with mitt romney and paul ryan. that is why i am here. the president in 2008 offered a pretty good vision of hope and change. he won virginia for the first time in 45 years. a lot of people believed in those promises. the results have not measured up. that is what people need to know. to have an eight% unemployment rate for over 43 months, to have it now be higher today than when president obama took office is pretty good evidence that the policies have not worked. we're not better off than we were four years ago. there's no
alternatives that will hamper urban america and america generally. the cost of the ticket to actually get in and complete college represent a barrier that i believe will ultimately injured our economy. not only that, but a rapid change in technological revolutions has created a spatial mismatch between the kinds of jobs that are going to be available going forward and the kinds of people who are able to take those jobs. that problem is most acutely seen in urban communities, which have been coming to your point, dealing with more basic concerns more so than trying to prepare and get ready and respond to changes in going forward. that is for those who are actually going to college and graduated. we have not even talked about those who are not. our young people are following what is going on. they are seen with their older friends are dealing with an understandably wonder about their prospects. we have to play -- pay close attention to that. i am a high art educator and i teach in a public university system. in the state where i teach, virginia, you see a number of state legislative budget
-- character that's gone through life with him. just general america. it's true that it's harder today than it was for my generation, but there are some opportunities. but i think bruce -- bruce is a very unique character, a real life force. you can always learn a lot by watching him and listening to him and he is a working guy. when i first met tim -- him he was broke, living in a surfboard factory. and the most impressive thing about him which i've always tried to emulate ever since, but never been able to quite get there, he was completely uncompromising. there was nothing anyone had that he wanted that would make him compromise his art or his position, you know? and he's that guy. so i don't -- i mean i just think that america, like everyone else believes or most people belief, is at a crossroads right now. if you go to other countries, especially asia and other stuff, importing all their students to get educated here and exporting all the brain power out right after that, i think it's a real problem, you know? but there's nhing i can do about that except try to make great music and gre
was delivered by the republican speaker of the house. >> hello, everybody. on tuesday, america went to the polls. and the message you sent was clear: you voted for action, not politics as usual. you elected us to focus on your jobs, not ours. that's why i've invited leaders of both parties to the white house next week, so we can start to build consensus around challenges we can only solve together. i also intend to bring in business, labor and civic leaders from outside washington to get their ideas and input as well. at a time when our economy is still recovering from the great recession, our top priority has to be jobs and growth. that's the focus of the plan i talked about during the campaign. it's a plan to reward businesses that create jobs here in america, and give people access to the education and training that those businesses are looking for. it's a plan to rebuild our infrastructure and keep us on the cutting edge of innovation and clean energy. and it's a plan to reduce our deficit in a balanced and responsible way. this is even more important because at the end of this year, we face
to america's relations and to america's set of priorities in the middle east -- taking down an airplane, blowing up embassies, attacking civilians, foreign governments with the attack on the saudi ambassador, foreign governments using terrorism even on our soil -- there is a whole range of possibilities here. let's not foreclose dealing with them. third, a sinai clash on steroids -- we saw in august, 2011 how the attempt by terrorists to kill israelis triggered an israeli reaction that ended up with the egypt-israel peace treaty being this far away from total collapse. i measure this as being the thickness on the door of the israeli embassy in cairo outside of which the protesters were bending down the door to attack the israeli diplomats on the other side of the door. that was when the military- controlled egypt -- today is a different situation. another clash triggered by terrorists seeking to promote egypt-israel conflict is eminently possible. we have to prepared now to prevent a spiral escalation. fourth, we have warned about this with the potential of wmd use in syria and massive
-- i should say north america, our backyard, and that is what is happening in venezuela. there you have the election of chavez. it was a free and fair election. you have a leader who is not fitting in the category you just mentioned, but someone who basically has used elections in non-democratic ways. he is elected in but then takes seriously non-democratic measures internally. that is a very difficult situation to grapple with in terms of fundamentalists. >> from my european point of view, the so-called unipolar moment has led us in nato, led the west, led the united states, in my view, to over emphasize the possible use of the military. i think over the last decade we have been forced to acknowledge the fact the obligation of military force tends to solve, at best, military challenges, but if he were faced with a political problem, you need a political solution, which means more than just the military. that appears to me to be a growing consensus in our community. and that leads me to the first question about what the gentleman over there asked about development and the military. as a
that you're in america, no dream is to be gift they are -- that here in america, no dream is to bake. -- too big. they see these jobs opportunities to give back. americans who believe we have a opportunity to look out for those who are less fortunate can move forward together. right now, as we prepare to gather around their dinner tables, there are families who do not have that luxury. many of them have lost everything to her game sandy. holmes, possessions, loved ones. it will be a long time before left it back to normal. in the middle of some much tragedy, there are also glimmers of hope. over the last few weeks we have seen fema personnel and first responders working around the clock. we have seen hospital workers distributing supplies. families offering extra bedrooms. the fire department advertising hot showers. buses full of volunteers coming from hundreds of miles away. neighbor sharing whatever they have, food, water, all electricity and saying again and again how lucky they are to have a roof over their head. it would be easy to do nothing, to worry about themselves and leav
was talking about moving america truly forward. mr. murphy was talking about negativity, as these campaigns have been doing respectively. host: he is calling us from sun city florida. up next is allen, an independent in minnesota. hello. caller: i came this year in minnesota michele bachmann is going to lose her seat. we should have a couple of democratic pickups there. i want to encourage people to really look at their party candidates in whatever say they may be in. we need to get more parties to the table rather than just democrats and republicans. host: are using much of that in minnesota? caller: in prior years more so than this year. it seems there's is the republican and democratic choice. we also have an independent streak, you can tell with a ron paul vote for president and jesse ventura. host: we will be airing a michele bachmann debate tomorrow. you can catch that here on c- span. looking at congressional and senate races throughout the country, joan is up next. caller: i am doing great. host: what is on your mind? caller: here in maryland we have carter versus iraq somebody. eve
and what happens to our great public research universities in america has consequences for the world at large, not just for the united states. i want to thank everyone for having deeply informed, really, model journalists who are saturated in our industry and have been able to challenge and provoke us and has, i think, and greatly enhanced the value of our proceedings. thank you for doing this for us and to all of the panelists and keynote speakers, too, a heartfelt thanks. thank you, everybody. for those of you dashing for the 1:00 hour flights, the shuttle bus should be outside the main entrance of the davis center. we will run it back around or i we will run it back around. sor >> join us tamara and the federal education policy. they are expected to talk about federal rules. our love coverage begins monday and o'clock a.m. eastern on c- span. >> what about if the soviet union announces that if we attack cuba it is gone into a nuclear war? >> we're going to be an easy. >> the happiest well qualified pi. -- they are all on alert. there are able to joke a little bit with each other,
in 2013 and in which regions, latin america, asia, africa. we will put up the answer as soon as it comes in. let's start talking about your global growth out looks. robert? >> the striking thing -- you can call me bob -- >> sorry. >> over the past five years, two-thirds of it has come from developing countries, and as recently as the 1990's those numbers would have been in the 20's. combined with what we heard about a year of and the demographic problem of japan, there is a big shift going on in the international system. what i want to connect to is the stuff we're doing at home in the united states not being enough. some of the things the prime minister was talking about, leveraging survival with international growth. the old system is the logger going to exist in the old form. you have got markets there. africa, 5% or 6% per year, back on the growth trajectory. >> can these developing markets keep up the pace but they have demonstrated? we have already seen china slowed down. >> it will vary by a cut rate. china will slow down. the one child policy means there is less labor in the mark
through united states of america -- at the same time they also say that the federal government should have less role in education in america. those things are somewhat inconsistent. at the end of the day, we have to have policies in state and locals throughout the country that are about nurturing good teachers and good teaching. having a robust curriculum. having art and music. having services for kids and having real collaboration. those of the things we know can turn around schools or make good schools even better. the federal government should, when they do policy about schooling, do things that not only do no harm but actually move that kind of agenda. i would like to see it go away from the silver bullet theory that if you just actually put a test score in a teacher of valuation that will make things great. or you have a charter school, that will make things great. that is not what makes things great. what makes things great is when you have teachers who are supportive and have the time and trust to do the things they need to do, have the tools they need, and you have kids who have th
of america beats the government. most of us don't see us that way. so that is the problem. i think it's under estimating of your opponents' strength and the reality in ferm of how pool view them. there was riches and ridicule that i don't understand the election. i know it played a zeep impact. listen, as i said, our party has gone through that gfer. and obviously owe 51% of the done fri. i will take any one of the number of the criticism of president obama. and there arish shoes that as republicans i just disagree with. however, you go back to mitt romney's book, what was the title snl "no apology" right, inferring that the president runs around the world apologizing for america not true that never happened. the birther conflict. that he was an alien imposter in the oval office. he's a socialist, he's a marxist. all of this deranged nonsense had a terrible impact not on the president but on republicans. for anybody out there that thinks that mitt romney running around with donald trump was good -- gut out to colorado and start smoking it. [applause] it is -- it is -- it is has been for fou
it in america. china -- we have people here who want to go on the internet, we are willing to pay license fees and are willing to pay your -- we want your source code. he says now. and we sit by the way, not only do we want your source code, we want you to make unique modifications to the microsoft systems. he says no, i do not do that. it is all the same. then he looks to the numbers and bill gates says, i guess i will give you the source code and the modification. you have heard of the great wall of china -- there's also the great fire wall of china. that country, with all those users, i'm going a little bit over the top on this, but not far from it, they can basically throw a switch and shut the rest of the world off. we do not have that capability. is the planned field even? is a mutually assured destruction? not in the cyberworld. not in cyber warfare. beyond all that good news, we have the phishers. i will talk more about them. the spammers, the terrorists, people conducting industrial espionage, and our foreign intelligence services which are obviously connected to the state sponsored n
is focused on the definitional question, the question of the definition of america. then the question of this in the country is, is it going to go toward a european-style social democracy or is it going to go more toward traditional conservative populism of a jackson or a reagan. certainly, when a country manages to deal with such deadlocks or to change the direction, it comes only through presidential leadership. it doesn't come through any other means. so, you've got a lot of red here, and that may be a good harbinger for your party but it does not say anything about how the country is going to move forward in terms of what you promote. so, given all of that -- if you buy any of it -- to what extent do you see any way in the world that the next four years will be anything other than a continuation of the last four, -- struggling, muddling through, kicking the can down the road and not really dealing with the fundamental problems of america? >> 3 very good questions. i would say that obama's first term has two parts -- before and after the 2010 election, just as the clinton administr
